Be part of the international network of shorebird scientists, conservationists, and enthusiasts participating in the fourth annual World Shorebirds Day! https://worldshorebirdsday.wordpress.com <https://worldshorebirdsday.wordpress.com/> This event invites us all to celebrate and count shorebirds where we live, and raise awareness about the conservation issues they are facing around the world. Global shorebird counting, species awareness and building ID skills is the overall mission of World Shorebirds Day as well as learning about the habitats that sustain their amazing migration flights. The event is a wonderful opportunity for people of all skill levels to contribute to data on shorebird populations at sites worldwide and broaden their skill set on shorebird identification. With over 1200 sites participating worldwide, plan to be part of the fun while representing Delaware as a globally important shorebird migration region.
Participants should meet in the Nature Center parking lot around 8:15 and bring water and a snack plus bug spray.
Hope to see many of you there to celebrate our shorebirds along on their travels!
